The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) recently announced the publication of a new update to the popular technical document Recycling Hot-Mix Asphalt Pavements. The text of this guide to the processing of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) at the hot-mix asphalt (HMA) plant has been significantly expanded. The publication also has been enhanced with new photographs and illustrations.
The revised 27-page publication explains the how-to of RAP--how to reclaim, size, store and process the material. The various types of HMA plants are covered. Calculations for determining the value of using RAP also are provided.
Recycling Hot-Mix Asphalt Pavements (order number IS-123) is available from NAPA for $16 per copy.
